The End

I have some news that is both exciting and a little sad: I am going to stop posting new content to Tungsten Hippo. The website will remain up, with the archives intact.

Book Introduction: TurboJetSlams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God

I have a book introduction for you this week! Jass Richards stops by to talk about her book, TurboJetSlams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God. I've actually read this one, and it is a humorous mix of story and philosophy-tinged thought about what we owe each other. Below, Jass explains what made her write it.

June Giveaway: Missed Chances

I have a new Taster Flight coming out on June 7: Hemmed In is an anthology of classic short stories about women's lives. I think it is my favorite taster flight yet, and to celebrate its release, I decided to giveaway TWO copies of the very first Taster Flight I did, Missed Chances.

Book Introduction: Cold Sweat and Thin Ice

Today, I have a book introduction guest post that doesn't just introduce a book: it introduces a series, and the first two books in that series.  J.S. Marlo is here to tell us about her books Cold Sweat and Thin Ice, and the Heart & Endurance series they start.

May Giveaway: A Gift Card to Your Favorite ebook Retailer

May is my birthday month, so it seems like a good month in which to do another gift card giveaway. I'll be giving away one $6 gift card to your favorite ebook retailer. Anyone can enter, but since it is my birthday month, I have a favor to ask: Tell a friend about Tungsten Hippo! Or, if you're more the social media type, share about it there. Tungsten Hippo posts get shared out on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, so you have options.

April Giveaway: Okay, So Look

I've drawn the winner for March's giveaway, so it is time to move on to April....
